HEWITT, Texas (KWTX) - The city of Hewitt is among the safest cities in Texas, according to a new study by a company named Safewise.

The McLennan County suburb jumped 30 spots on this year’s list, and is the highest ranking central Texas town.

Researchers said the low incidents of violent crime and a lower property crime rate are reasons for such a high ranking.

The company said it used data from the FBI, and from the Census to compile the yearly ranking.
